Which cancers are you susceptible to, how will you prevent them?

For me, it is colon and prostate cancers, which fortunately will be easy to test for as I age (prostate checks and shit biomarker swabs)

    I have eczema and a lot of moles, so probably skin cancer. Just gonna keep industrial stuff off my skin as much as possible and wear sunscreen if I'm gonna be out a while. I moisturize with a skin cream too if my eggsimuh flares up or else I itch like a motherfricker

      Just be glad it’s not skin cancer, Black women die at a significantly higher rate compared to White women I’ve read. Apparently a big part of it is because they don’t sunburn and assume that this means they don’t accumulate any damage and can’t actually get that sort of thing. It’s probably also a whole lot harder to notice the visual signs of it I’m sure, especially if you aren’t really looking.

        Doctors are notoriously bad at spotting lesions, bruises, infection, etc in black skin.

    >at high risk of CVD due to lp(a) in 95th percentile (119mg/dl)

    trying to prevent by keeping low blood pressure, healthy diet and exercise regime, minimize stress.
    Only med available to lower it is close to being released but I won't get it unless I have a heart attack, stent, or advanced level of CVD since it's only perscribed for primary prevention.

    Untreatable rare cancers that end up in medical textbooks. No troll, no LARP. Both my grandpa and great grandpa died of cancers that only have like 6 and 14 recorded cases in history respectively. I don't even stress about it because if those are the cancers that run in the family, then frick it, I have no way to actually fix them so there's no need to worry myself about it.

      Some of these cancers are only considered untreatable because they are near impossible to catch early (like pancreatic cancer). But if you take preventative measures like biyearly MRI scan after hitting 50, you can greatly reduce your risk of dying to pancreatic for example.

        Dude, it's not stuff like that. It's things that even oncologists typically never even think is possible. Wildly rare and basically not treatable even when caught early because of how strange the cancer acts. I'd rather not give specific examples because I'd get doxxed immediately but trust me man it's cancers that basically no one gets

          I don't have anything in either side of the family but that doesn't stop me from being like THIS IS IT, THIS IS HOW I GET ULTRA CANCER every time there's a twinge of pain somewhere I can't immediately explain.

            You should get a gene test then, it's pretty likely you have predispositions you're just unaware of.

              Maybe. My mom warned me about alcoholism running in hers, but that's not exactly a disease. Everybody on either side by blood clears at least 80 with no complications and the ones who don't have an explanation (heavy smokers and lung cancer, natural disasters).

    my brother had a spindle cell tumor that already spread when it was discovered, on his death bed he said it just felt like he was on the verge of catching a cold, he only made it to 30
    so yea idk im probably suspectible to all kinds of cancer because i was gigaobese my whole life
    my grandmother had colon issues (not sure if cancer) and a shit bag at the end of her life
    my father and grandfather have massive thyroid and prostate issues, i had my thyroid checked multiple times so far and it seems to be alright, too scared to let a doc put a finger up my ass though for the prostate.
    already had my gall bladder (stones) removed and the colonoscopy and whatever its called for the stomach done, nothing.
    havent let my prostate get checked though

      That's the point where I'm checking out. Self service if necessary. I can live with a lot of things, but a bag of shit attached to an open abdominal wound that leaks shit constantly is a no-go

    >how to prevent them
    I'll try to fast 1-2 weeks every two years for that. I'd be better off quitting smoking, drinking alcohol and hot beverages, and living in a big city or getting sunburned, though, but I can't help it.

    Never heard of any cancer deaths or diseases in my extended family. They all died from heart attacks.

    hey thats great, you can have the doctor finger your ass and if you're unlucky he will drug you and cut up your body.

    it cant be promised that you wont unexpectedly die quite suddenly, but you better let the doc do these things to you okay? it doesnt really matter if you understand, just trust him bro.

    Im sure they dont base their treatments on observational studies right? just really control random trial. yea its totally needed that you get fingered and cut up. no doubt ( p = 0.95 )

    Prostate and breast cancer screening don't improve outcome. You are just more likely to be overtreated

      Just practice monitoring for tumor growth if you find a small benign tumor.

    I'm vegan and mostly eat whole plant foods, so I'm pretty much immune to cancer and heart disease.

    the only cancer anyone in my family has had (that i know of) is testicular cancer and he's still alive decades later, luckily that's one you can self-check easily
